I was able to fit the NOTE 2, but it was a snug fit, so much that, I had to slightly bend the upper clamp to get the phone in. Below are the maximum dimensions that can fit without any troubles

Width: 150.7 mm (6 in) maximum
Height: 59 mm (2 3/8 in) to 77 mm (3 1/8 in)
Depth: 12 mm (1/2 in) maximum

Please note that at present it does not support Android Lollipop 5.0. The App works one in ten times.

Hope to get an update soon.

Hi Guys, This is what I have done to the XSP N1BT to have bigger phones fit into it.

Sony cradle turns Smartphone into an In-car Multimedia System-img20141219wa0002.jpg

What I did was, opened the head unit's faceplate and removed the top & the bottom clamp, and fixed the faceplate back., then fixed a T2 ultra back case with 3M double tape directly to the faceplate. Then fit the phone in there, so that I can place & remove the phone as needed. The border is now filled with heatlon foam as a temporary arrangement. will work on a making the borders perfect. I do not have any WIP pictures, as I did not have any plan as to what I am going to do. I just did it.

Just a word of caution on this XSP N1 BT.
I requested Maruti to fit this on my car, but my iPhone 6 wouldn't pair with this device. Called up the Sony toll free customer care # and they informed me that iPhone 6 is not compatible :(
